“At the time I was posted here for my primary assignment, I discovered the need for more classrooms and the learning environment was not conducive for the pupils and the management of the school, even the structures were dilapidated and needed urgent renovation as most students received lectures under the trees.
“It was this horrible experience that gave birth to the idea for the construction of additional classrooms. Though at first, it was not an easy one to bring this idea to life considering my financial capability, but I was determined and so passionate to see that this project is put to life.”
